The tour starts with a pick up from your hotel or the airport/train station and drive to a small traditional village about 20 minutes outside of Chiang Mai. Here the cycling commences and you will visit traditional villages with wooden houses on stilts, stop at a village school, ride through the rice fields along lazy back roads and the forest areas connecting the small villages.

Encounters such as water buffaloes crossing the street or children surprised by the unusual sight of foreigners cycling through their village can be expected. There is sufficient time to stop, have a rest or refreshment and chat with the villagers to get a feeling of the local life. You will stay at a beautiful resort with teak wood buildings and a saltwater swimming pool and have dinner later that night. Distance today 27 kilometers.
